A PICTURE PERFECT DUO
North Shore photographers Kerri Sherman and Heidi Clifton partnered on a creative project for long-standing local establishment, Lake Forest Food & Wine. Owner Maria Gomez entrusted Sherman and Clifton’s artistic collaboration for this visual project saluting the community.
The space has been transformed with a dramatic gallery wall, showcasing the fabulous faces of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff residents they have captured over the years. The photos will rotate with new images over time, celebrating community and the subjects they depict.
Countless hours, along with paint and materials, brought this collaborative vision to life. Of this project, the duo shares, “We believe in community over competition, and truly support each other’s work.”
Sherman and Clifton started by creating a gorgeous color palette of deep teal, shades of turquoise, and warm neutrals for the walls. A huge series of black and white photographs in modern white frames pop perfectly on the wall. Adjacent is a geometric action wall, with a pair of grey modern Barcelona lounge chairs—the perfect spot to visit with friends and watch the action on Bank Lane.
Over the next month, the space will continue to transform in color, along with a new menu design, logo, and signage. Weekly specials and wine tastings will kick off celebrating the new look and rebranding of Lake Forest Food & Wine.
Lake Forest Food & Wine is located at 645 Bank Lane in Lake Forest, 847-234-0620. To see more of photographer Kerri Sherman’s work, visit kerrisherman.com. To see more of photographer Heidi Clifton’s work, visit cecilygeorge.com.
